(MENAFN - Muscat Daily) Members of public thwarted a chain snatching attempt near the Muttrah fish market recently and nabbed the thief involved in the crime. According to eyewitnesses, the victim, a three year old girl, was accompanying her family to the fish market on Thursday morning when the incident took place.

A shopper at the vicinity noticed that a thief had snatched a girl's gold chain, and immediately informed the girl's mother who in turn alerted other family members. The family along with other members of the public chased the thief as he tried to flee from the spot. They eventually caught him and handed him over to police.

Mohammed Aziz al Balushi, a fisherman who was at the Muttrah fish market during the incident, said, ''There have been cases of pick-pocketing and other thefts in the past, but this is the first time a chain snatching incident has been reported near the Muttrah fish market.''

According to Muttrah police station, the accused is being interrogated and will soon be handed over to the Public Prosecution for further legal proceedings.
